YONCEÌ-X is the latest remix project from East Flatbush emcee/producerÂ MeLo-X, which finds him putting his own spin on choice cuts from Beyonce's new self-titled visual album. It was accompanied by a series of brief video remixes, which y'all can peep here.
Can you dig it?
From the man himself:Â
"I've been doing remix albums for a while now. This Beyonce album was just so revolutionary and had so many layers and stories I kept hearing bits and pieces I could elaborate on. The remix album can also be looked at as a instrumental album because I'm sampling her music the way a producer would sample an old 1970's record. It's really a big art and passion project for me. I met Beyonce at a New Year's Eve party at Solange's house two years ago and gained even more respect and admiration for her...Â I bought the album the day it came out and vibed with it until Christmas Day. On that night I made the whole Remix EP and spent the next week creating the video pieces and just refining the mixes."Â
